Observer: Paul Lauenstein
Observation Date: 12/14/09
Observation Time: 1:50 p.m.
Observation Location: Wolomolopoag Pond
Common Name: Greater White-fronted Goose
Scientific Name: Anser albifrons
Comments: White-fronted geese, barnacle geese, and snow geese, which summer in the arctic, depend on Sharon’s open spaces for winter refuge. Catching a glimpse of one is a reminder of the role Sharon’s open spaces play in global ecosystems. Scan flocks of Canada geese for one that looks different.
